En bref. Voilà qu’après un an et demi de phase d’essai le troisième volet de la série de STR Blitzkrieg est ouvert à tous. Au menu l’ensemble de 39 – 45, depuis l’invasion de la Pologne jusqu’à la prise de Berlin, le tout regroupé dans trois campagnes distinctes. Pour l’occasion voici une vidéo permettant d’apercevoir divers extraits de gameplay, ainsi que les capacités de l’IA, nommée ici Boris, à jouer correctement.
Attention au son, la musique de cette vidéo est particulièrement brutale et donc désagréable. Probablement un choix pour représenter la combativité de l’IA, en tous cas une très bonne idée pour gâcher une bande-annonce résumant très, voire trop, sommairement les capacités de l’IA.
Blitzkrieg 3 Was Officially Released: June 2, 2017
ST. PETERSBURG, RUSSIA – JUNE 2 2017
Nival releases Blitzkrieg 3, an online World War II real-time strategy made for true admirers of tactical mastery.
Blitzkrieg 3 features the world’s first Neural Network AI for RTS. Ruthless machine named Boris plays at the top player’s level while not using any hidden information about the enemy. General Boris regularly analyzes the gaming session and makes Neural Network-based predictions of the enemy behavior. This approach allows him to think up sophisticated counter-strategies and bring them to life. That makes Boris tough and unpredictable, so he can amaze players over and over again.
Game covers the main period of World War II: from the invasion of Poland in 1939 to the triumphant capture of Berlin in 1945. Each of three atmospheric campaigns provides a unique blend of PvE, PvP and PvAI missions. In total, game features 60+ historical missions with 200+ authentic combat units. Each unit has performance characteristics reconstructed in detail, such as fire rate, armored capture, field of vision, and others that let players feel like real generals.
In addition to classic Skirmish 1×1, 2×2, and 3×3 modes Blitzkrieg 3 features the unique asymmetric Assault mode, where one player attacks and the other defends his fortifications. 20+ historical commanders with their own specialization and favorite combat tactics combined with dynamic weather system make every PvP and/or PvAI game even more diverse.
“Blitzkrieg 3 was created with the active participation of the player community.”, – commented Pavel Naumenko, head of Blitzkrieg studio. – “We strongly believe that players’ contributions are invaluable and we will continue to develop the game according to their feedback”.
You can get more information and purchase a digital copy of the game on the official website.
